This is an older episode of the show.  I figured I’d post a few of my favorite shows I’ve done in the past during “off weeks” when I’m not doing the regular show grind.  This was one of those favorite shows.  An episode talking about food and gamer culture.

This was released last year, April 4, 2012.  It’s mostly talking about junk food being marketed towards gamer culture with a more than slight deviation about health and caffeine.  It’s also being done on my old camera  so the quality is a little poorer than my current shows.

But unrelated, something I say a LOT on my livestreams.  A friend of mine once told me “I know you don’t smoke weed but damn, you eat like a stoner.”  So I like potato chips, gummy gears and cookies!  WHO DOESN’T?!?!?

I'm a gamer. I'm a reality junkie. I'm a cynic. I'm a dinosaur. I'm a writer. I'm so much more than a paragraph can say. You want more? Ok. I started a video game show on the internet some time ago. See, I've played video games since Intellivision and Atari 2600 and PONG back in the day. Retro-gaming doesn't really fire me up as much as seeing how the community ticks. And after seeing way too many "I'm too young to have played this game when it first came out but it MAKES ME SO ANGRY" reviewers who would happily eviscerate my childhood for lulz... yeah I tossed my hat into the ring. the quickly scooped it back up, I'm told I have a bald spot that needs covering. Outside of gaming... yes I go outside shut up... I like to play paintball when I can. I snowboard a lot, when I can. I go mountain biking, when I can... seeing a trend yet? I prefer reality to video games, but at 4 AM it's hard to find a paintball game going on. Lately I livestream a lot, playing video games for an audience.
